OEMs will work just as good as any, there is a ton of hype about spark plugs but... they are all about the same. The only issues would be if you went to forced induction or something then you would need to modify the gap or heat range etc.

for the gap, I think it was somewhere around .050 or something... don't quote me, but it'll give you an idea. Mine came from the box and everyone of them hit right at the gap mark.

you can go with motorcraft or you can just use autolite platnium which is an oem match.
